FWIW, I often use the 4:5 crop mode on my D800 (which results in a 30Mp file size). This is when I know that I will be printing 8x10s (e.g. events and portraits). It *REALLY* helps with composition. Thus my experience is that I would like to have several OOTB "crops" supported, not just 1.5x crop.

Google Translate tells me that the test session was very brief, and the conclusions not very reliable. The user was doing things like missing focus sometimes (eg background in focus, not foreground), and blaming the AF for that, calling it 'hestitant' etc.
yes, but there are several opinions about 70-200


JPEG is good, but nothing to say about RAW - how to open PEF?

PDCU reads the exif but does not display the photo. Fast Picture Viewer displays PEF. Faststone also works.

Just wait a week and take everything until April 25th with salt. Production units aren't officially shipped yet, are they? Test unit posts are either violations of NDA or they aren't production test units, right?

What do you mean officially shipped?
All dealers have got new firmware 1.00 already.

You can set the output aspect ratio for JPEG and video as you can with other Pentax bodies. As I recall the support output ratios are 1:1, 4:3, 16:9 and a couple others. They are probably the same as the K-3/K-3ii.

Setting output aspect ratio is far different than having a framing tool at the time of capture. I would concur that in-camera framing tools can greatly assist the artistic eye / resources of the photographer- much more so than just having to rely on shoot wide and post-process crop.

Fastone Viewer is a great all-purpose editor/viewer. Price is right.
